The Founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet T.B Joshua has been appointed as the Ambassador of Tourism in Israel by the Israeli government.

The award is coming after the Prophet held a two-day event in June, 2019, at the Amphitheatre of Mount Precipice, in the historic hometown of Jesus Christ.

Although the event, was fiercely criticised by local religious figures and nearly faced cancellation due to the intensity of attacks, it attracted thousands of religious tourists from across the globe.

Hundreds of people had protested against the event, they had marched through the city in Northern Israel with placards condemning the coming event and shouting; “Let this witch get away from us!”

A group of religious figures also visited the venue of Mount Precipice af­ter the event and carried out a ‘cleansing ritual’ with wa­ter, leaves and salt.

However, despite the several setbacks and criticisms sur­rounding the event, it was held successfully.

The event, which was broadcasted on local tele­vision throughout Israel and featured in The New York Times and Reuters, attracted the attention of Israel’s Min­istry of Tourism.

This prompted the Israeli government to give the Nigerian clergyman an award, as they made him a ‘Tourism Goodwill Ambassador’.
